The Music Oracle Meme

March 21st, 2006 by MrLuxuryFashionGuru

My version of the iTunes oracle meme via Darryl’s blog.

Instructions: Go to your music player of choice and put it on shuffle. Say the following questions aloud, and press play. Use the song title as the answer to the question. NO CHEATING.

How does the world see me?
I’ll Stand By You (Girls Aloud).  Oh, why you look so sad?  Tears are in your eyes… Nothing you confess, can make me love you less.   Loyal and caring?  Or maybe I’m seen as the mournful person who needs comforting.

Will I have a happy life?
That I Would be Good (Stefanie Sun).  That I would be fine, even if I went bankrupt… that I would be great, even if I was no longer creative… that I would be loved, even when I’m not myself; that I would be good, even when I’m overwhelmed.  Unclear, could go either way, although there’re some good messages there; It’s a wistful, optimistic song.

What do my friends really think of me?
Perfect World (Tom Jones – Emporer’s New Groove OST).  An enigma and a mystery, in Mesoamerican history, the quintessence of perfection, that is he…  he’s the hippest dude in creation…  generations have been leading to this miracle of life that we all know.  LOL.  I don’t know what to make of this one.  So I’m the delusional megalomaniac?  In the Disney movie Cuzco was voiced by David Spade, in whom I can detect a passing (if undesireable) resemblance.

Do people secretly lust after me?
Lover’s Concerto (Toys – Mr Holland’s Opus OST).  Now, I belong to you, from this day until forever; just love me tenderly and I’ll give to you every part of me.  Not bad, and just when I could use a confidence boost šŸ™‚

How can I make myself happy?
Mr Blue Sky (Polyphonic Spree), but the song got cut off by mistake and skipped to Cool (Gwen Stefani).  And after all the obstacles, it’s good to see you now with someone else…  after all that we’ve been through, I know we’re cool.  So I guess I should just chill out and enjoy whatever life brings.

What should I do with my life?
Never, Never Gonna Give You Up (Lisa Stansfield) but I accidentally skipped to You & Me (Lifehouse).  I’m tripping on words, you got my head spinning, I don’t where to go from here… there’s you and me and all other people, with nothing to lose…  Not much help there.  I guess it’ll all turn out fine in the end.  Or perhaps I should be focusing on finding the great love of my life?

Will I ever have children?
Walk With Me (Clara’s Star).  But we don’t care, cause we don’t have to go nowhere, we’re just chilling day by day… Until I hear a baby cry, breaking up my daydream, happens all the time, but that’s all right, you know it’s just a part of life, gotta take it day by day.  Not entirely clear, but this upbeat song does mention a baby.  Hey, I can hope, right šŸ™‚

What is some good advice for me?
I’m In the Mood For Love (Rod Stewart).  And if there’s a cloud above, if it should rain, well let it.  But for tonight forget it, I’m in the mood for love.  Be a loving person?  Que sera sera?  Sieze the day with my romantic interests?  Good advice, all.

How will I be remembered?
Havanna Moon (Godsdog).  A cool, laid-back jazz track with barely any vocals, and those are in…  Spanish?  I can’t imagine I’ll be remembered that way.  Eclectic, inspired, beautiful, I wouldn’t mind being remembered that way.  Amongst the various audio samples are news reports about a nuclear test and a man going to the electric chair…  Foreshadowing?  I hope not.

What is my signature dancing song?
Sexed Up (Robbie Williams), an acoustic version .  But I hadn’t read the question yet so I read it and moved on to  Girl from Ipanema (Lou Rawls), a live recording.  You know she looks straight ahead, she won’t look back at me…  I suppose I could dance to that, although I can’t see that as my signature dancing song right now.  Maybe when I’m 35.

What do I think my current theme song is?
Sidewalk Flight (Jon Brion – Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind OST).  A brief instrumental soundtrack piece, all nervous plucked strings and anticipation.  Quite appropriate, actually.

What does everyone else think my current theme song is?
Wake Me Up When September Ends (Green Day).   Here comes the rain again, falling from the stars; Drenched in my pain again, becoming who we are.  Just passing time, feeling sensitive and sad?  Possible, I suppose.

What song will play at my funeral?
When I Fall in Love (Westlife). When I fall in love, it will be forever, or I’ll never fall in love.  In a restless world like this is, love is ended before it’s begun…  I could see this being played, hopefully by the great loves of my life.  The song is full of the sort of tenderness that gives it the potential to be very sad and moving, sweet and touching.

What type of men/women do I like?
Men: Desafinado (Gal Costa).  Entirely in…  Portuguese?  So I apparently like my men foreign, laid back (very bossa nova), and slightly “out of tune” (desafinado).  I can see that.
Women: Day Tripper (Tok Tok Tok).  It took me so long to find out, and I found out.  He’s a big teaser, he took me half the way there…  So I like women who are clueless, soon to be disillusioned and suckers for punishment?  I’m fairly baffled.

What is my day going to be like?
When You’re Good to Mama (Queen Latifa – Chicago OST).  Because the system works, the system called reciprocity.  Got a little motto, always sees me through: when you’re good to mama, mama’s good to you.  A day of cynical political intruigue disguised as casual fun?  Hmmn, I wonder what that could be.  šŸ˜‰

    When discussing the success or failures of social media sites, I feel the result either way depends on the marketing and manipulation of the element of “control”. By control I mean the users arena of control in personalizing, engaging and contributing to the social media site they are involved in. The control can be real or perceived but the presence of it influences the users like and association as well as the involvement. The goal of marketing on-self weather it adult oriented or sport or social or business, is to maximize that dynamic of “control”. Within the see-saw structure of use/control, you need to input your product and yield the return.
